Professional, spartan, neat, (bit scruffy) bunk-bed spot.
$25/night in bunk bed / shared room
(Minimum stay is 4 nights. Other commuters are mainly techfolks.)
**10am-5pm, you must be out of the house. This is not to function as a home-office, but may be used as one in the evenings.**
Short term sublet by downtown Mtn. View. Next to Eagle Park and town swimming pool and a few blocks from Castro St. (town's main st.) which is packed with restaurants, bars, shops.
Library is about 4 blocks away.
15min walk to Mtn. View Caltrain station to get to SFO, San Francisco, near-SJC, San Jose.
Home is 3bdrm w/ bunk beds. Folks here are either p/t or commuters who work in local companies but live far away.
Free wifi / printer usage in home office setup in living room.
Mellow, very uncluttered home.
Full kitchen privileges.
Pay washer/dryer available.
To be perfectly clear - this is not a private room, but a spot in a shared room, with others.
Shoes off in the house.
All personal belonging must be kept in closet space, on your bed, or under bunkbed. (Cleaning lady will relocated things which are left around and you'll need to wait for me to be around to get them out of storage. This is done to avoid the home becoming cluttered and resembling a youth hostel.)
You will be allotted cupboard space and will not leave dishes in the sink and will wipe down counter-tops.
Despite the rough tone of these last few sentences, the home is pretty darn mellow.
Check-in before 8pm on first night
Pool across the streets costs ~$5 per swim session.
**Note: I am not looking for the home to be anyone`s home office. There are desks to work at in the evenings/wknds. There are plenty of coffee shops in the area, as well as the Mtn. View public library which is about a 5min walk away.
Linc's place is great. Linc and the other guests were very considerate, fair, and respectful, and it was quiet, neat, and orderly. Great location and great deal. I will definitely stay there again!
What an awesome guy and incredible place!!! Linc is amazing and the house is perfect. I would never thought I would find a house so perfect and cheap. I'm 100% sure I'll go back to Linc's house when I return to Mountain View.
I don't think I could have had a better Mountain View experience staying anywhere else. Linc was an amazing host; I had a blast staying at Linc's. Also, the folks you meet at Linc's are all super friendly and respectful.
Like all the other reviews state, the space is immaculately clean and roomy. Coin laundry is only a few feet away and is super convenient. There's tons of desk space to work at in the common area.
Linc is an awesome host. It's been the third time I stayed at his place. The house is conveniently located near downtown Mountain View, about 10 minutes walk to the Caltrain station and just opposite of a beautiful park. I'm sure I'll visit again.!
It was nice meeting the host, Linc, an easygoing and respectful person! His house is clean and organized. As described in the airbnb profile, the house is located at super convenient spot and quiet environment as well. I got everything I need and had pleasant time there during my stay. I'd highly recommend this place for people looking for a shared room in Mountain view area.
Linc was very nice and hospitable. He also kept the facilities and the whole place overall very clean.
This place (and Linc) can be best described using one word: Awesomeness.
I booked for a week about half a week in advance. Unexpectedly I had to leave and wound up driving back across the country to go home -- just life happening, we've all been there. Anyway I did not stay at all at the place. I did not expect Linc to refund me for this as it wasn't his fault and the error was on my part, not his (not that the nightly price was much anyway). We exchanged pleasant emails when I was somewhere in Nevada and that's all. About a week later I see an automated email from Airbnb saying '$200 has been refunded to your...'
This totally vibes with what I would honestly expect upon meeting Linc briefly the Wednesday before to go over house rules and whatnot -- just a nice guy. I will definitely look him up upon return to the bay area and in between leases or whatever!
The place was SPOTLESS, btw. Awesome location right across from the MtnView pool. Well thought-out, already had all things like 'what's the internet password?' etc etc way taken care of and right there ready for you.
Linc was a fantastic host. The room was clean and tidy and often it was just me in there. Everything I needed was provided for me and it's all very organised. There's a large open living room with comfy chairs and desks to work at and it's a lovely atmosphere with people coming in and out all the time. I would recommend this wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a place to sleep, provided they aren't necessarily looking for something entirely private.
